Over the summer, I found this really neat bug. I have no clue what it could be called, but it sure did like hanging around the nature park’s garden!

Red Milkweed Beetle

Dear Mark,
Though it was on grass when you took the image, this is a Red Milkweed Beetle or Milkweed Longhorn in the genus
Tetraopes, which is always found in association with milkweed, its sole food plant.
